    It is a pretty great community. Not much to worry about honestly. Everyone is happy and is easy to talk to. Occasionally the homeless population will be a little rowdy and annoying but it usually does not last long.

      Overall, the apartment is ok. There are other buildings around that provide a more welcoming environment. The external door is always surrounded by flies and smells horrible. The interior is maintained and maintenance has always been prompt.

                        4730 California is a good apartment to live in. The only concern is it does get quite hot in the summer time, but other than that, it's a wonderful place. The neighbors are friendly and the staff are friendly.

                                                Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback for our community. Since the last vehicle break in, almost a year ago, we have added additional video cameras and door security devices. It is unfortunate that these things occur, but we have increase the deterrent measures to help prevent them. Our community responds to all notices from residents where an issue has occurred. The video for all our spaces is always reviewed is such a matter, and any charges for cleaning is discussed heavily with all individuals that may have been responsible. Because of the level of scrutiny taken to find the responsible individual and keep innocent persons from taking the blame, we have never charged any of our residents for cleaning up after a gathering. because the safety of our residents is our utmost priority, we take care to make sure our fire system is working correctly. A recent trouble has required the testing of the system to help make corrections. We do apologize for any inconvenience that may be caused to all our residents. Thank you again for the review, we will use this information to continue to improve our service. Best, Your 4730 California Team

                                                  Fairly positive. The only real issues are ones or of the property's control (like business parking their trucks in the alley we use to get to our parking). But in general, friendly neighbors, good management, nice place to live.
